Russia’s Very, Very Unfriendly Skies

A wise man never flies Russia's most unfriendly skies!

The month of June proved to be one of the worst and most humiliating in the history of Russian aviation. Unfriendly skies? Call them downright hostile!

First, a TU-134 airliner crashed while attempting to land near Petrozavodsk, killing all of its nearly four dozen passengers.  This model drops out of the sky with metronomic regularity, and Russia was soon ordering it out of service.  But this could only leave all intelligent people wondering:  Why did Russia wait so long?

It was only the beginning, though.

Next, a MiG-29 fighter jet went down in Astrakhan, and the Kremlin was forced to ground the entire fleet of fighters as well.  Two entire lines of Russian airplane taken out of service in the same week as unflyable!   Worse still, the jet had been bound for India, which had just spent billions buying numerous copies of the fighter for its carrier force, and now has to worry about grounding its own fleet.  Who in their right mind would now do business with Russian aircraft manufacturers?

Russia has one of the worst air safety records in the world, with an incident rate that is a shocking thirteen times higher than the world average.  Who is responsible for that?  The man who holds all the power, of course, and that would be one Vladimir Putin.

Yet despite all this catastrophic failure, the idiotic denizens of Russia continue to treat Putin as if her were superman. They ignore his obvious personal corruption, they ignore his horrifying spate of political murders, they ignore his obliteration of democracy.  And most of all, they ignore the planes dropping out of the sky all around them.

Why do they do it? Are they suicidal? Simply stupid? Or are they actually evil, supporting their evil government because they believe in it?

  1. The picture above should be used as an advertisement, and an invitation for the tourists from all over the world to visit sochi olympics. It marks very well where the visitors will land…I thought that until now, the russian barbarians used the flying coffins called tupolev planes, to murder pollitical opponents abroad – murder of Polish President Lech Kaczynski; outspoken foe of russia’s imperialism and barbarity; as well as killing of internal opponents as it happened recently on the Finnish territory – putin killed the whole cadre of nuclear industry in russia; trying to preserve a monopoly of oil and gas mafi. No wonder, the South Korea, the country that lost the bid for 2012 winter olympics, is building like crazy, the infrastructure and facilities for the olympics as they, indeed, won the bid. Watch that space – we might be flying boeings to Seul for the 2012 winter olympics after all…….

      • Still the TOURISTS WILL BE FLYING TO SOCHI OLYMPICS THE COFFINS CALLED TUPOLEVS, I CAN SEE THE MILLIONS FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD TRYING TO GET INTO THOSE MAGNIFICENT FLYING MACHINES, MADE BY RUSSIAN BABOONS THAT CRASH 50%. LET’S BOOK THE WHOLE POPULATION OF RUSSIA ON THOSE PLANES….
